Biography

Jedward Richard GRAEF

When Jed Graef won the 200m backstroke with a new world record at the Tokyo Games, he became the first Princetonian to win an Olympic gold medal for swimming. This proved to be by far the most significant victory of his career; the only other major title he won was the NCAA 200y backstroke in 1964. Graef earned a Ph.D. in psychology and was a pioneer in the field of sports psychology.
